Legendary Kannada actor and politician Ambareesh passes away at 66


Former Union minister and legendary Kannada actor MH Ambareesh died after suffering a cardiac arrest. The 66-year-old was admitted to Vikram Hospital in Bengaluru on Saturday evening after he complained of breathlessness. He was reportedly suffering from a kidney ailment.
A three-time Lok Sabha member and also a former state minister, he had not been keeping well in recent years. Ambareesh is survived by his wife, actress Sumalatha and son Abhishek. Popularly known as the 'rebel star', Ambareesh was a Vokkaliga leader who wielded considerable clout in the Mandya region of Karnataka, where the community has a large presence.

He was born on May 29, 1952, in the Doddarasinakere village of Mandya district in the erstwhile Mysore State (now Karnataka). He was named as Malavalli Huchche Gowda Amarnath. Entering the tinsel world through the movie, 'Nagarahavu', directed by veteran late Puttanna Kannagal in 1972, Ambareesh carved a niche for himself in the Kannada film industry, particularly as an 'angry man', earning the title 'rebel star'.

Ambareesh's body is kept at Bengaluru's Kanteerava Stadium for fans to pay their tribute. The Karnataka government has declared a three-day state mourning and said his funeral will be held with full state honours.
